    I get that all the time. Often when I convert an .avi to dvd I can only hear like the music soundtrack, not the dialog. If I hear anything I figure I have an audio track and just go with it. Something about the audio in DVD having a really wide range. Annoying because late at night if I play a movie and put the sound up enough to hear the dialog, then some car explodes and the walls shake!!

    I have mine set for my setup. Seems to vary by DVD. Some it seems no matter
    how I crank the volume the dialog is silent. Others seem more normal. It's too bad
    the sound effects and dialog aren't independently adjustable. Too many movies want to blow the windows out, but have the voices at a whisper(like dialog in The Matrix)
